The moment you decide to go on a pilgrimage; the process already starts.
It was right before Nyepi; the Balinese Day of Silence I had that itch inside to shed another layer.
My established routines were getting old, my to-do lists suffocating, my mood heavy, my numbing devices full power.
The destination of this pilgrimage was not a tantric hot spot in the world. They also get to be inner-journeys. In between Nyepi and Navaratri* - The Nine Nights of the Goddess coming up, I went through a period of embracing the dark clouds.
Am I doing what I should be doing? Why is there so much need for 'doing' in my life? I don't want to be 'doing' my spiritual practice; what if it just turned into another item to be checked in the to-do list? Am I missing out on life? Or is it just the global reality we are all living in? And many more questions.
Then the darkness turned into anger, frustration, negativity; even headaches, fatigue and breathing constrictions.
I took refuge in the woods with some close friends and washed everything away under abundant waterfalls of the Great Mother…
Then came the call of Bagalamukhi - the Goddess of Control!
Every Navaratri; we meditate on an aspect of the Divine Mother which is the most beneficial for the sentient beings at that particular time. In the middle of that auspicious trip, I found out that we will be invoking Ma Bagalamukhi! The powerful, fierce aspects that clears the illusions, confusion and misconceptions. Aren't we all in need of this exactly right now!?
During this Chaitra Navaratri between 12th-23rd of April - 2021, I invite you to take your self-practice up a notch. This is a special time where every beneficial thing you do to be more connected will have amplified effects. Be it better self-care, more yoga, meditation or whatever rocks your boat!
However, if you would like to work with this powerful Goddess in the traditional way using a specific mantra for this particular Navaratri process from Shivoham Tantra, then join my Facebook group The 10 Wisdom Goddesses; I am sharing discourses, Q&A's and talks with practitioners there.
Some important notes:
- This practice is both for men and women
- It is suitable for people who never meditated or done yoga before
- Advanced practitioners will love feeling the power of the Goddess
- There are 2 different ways to join; low potency open mantra or high potency full mantra.
- Drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org for more further details on the practice.
Looking forward to share this unique work with you!
